Jumping with Rickster

Anyone who has been in the sport for more than ten minutes knows or recognizes the name Rickster Powell. Rickster is a professional test jumper for Performance Designs and has logged more than 20,000 jumps! In addition to being an amazing canopy pilot, he is also a highly accomplished photographer with many national and international competitions under his belt. During a visit to Skydive Arizona back in July 2011, I had the chance to make a jump with him and chase him under an experimental wing (now known as the VALKYRIE) that was still undergoing some R&D. Here are some of my selects from the jump:
